Piña Colada

Piña Colada

What's better on a hot summer afternoon by the pool or at a backyward BBQ than this irresistible, brain-freeze-inducing vacation stalwart. "Piña Colada", which translates to "strained pineapple" in Spanish, originated in Puerto Rico. The earliest known story states that in the 19th century, Puerto Rican pirate Roberto Cofresí gave his crew a morale-boosting beverage containing coconut, pineapple, and white rum. After his death the recipe was lost only to be recreated by a Puerto Rican bartender Ramon Marrero in the 1950s. We decided to play with classic proportions and added Mommenpop Blood Orange as well as a splash of coconut orgeat to take this tropical delight to the next level. Decorate it simply with a slice of pineapple, or go all out and pile on colorful umbrellas, cherries, orchids, and curly straws for a trip to old San Juan anytime.
